Kobalt 10-Piece SAE Combination Wrench Set Review
Kobalt’s 10-Piece SAE Combination Wrench Set is made in USA and includes 10 different SAE sized wrenches from 1/4-inch to 7/8-inch. The wrenches are drop forged and have a nice textured grip so that they won’t easily slip out of hand during use. We found that even when our hands were oily, the wrenches stayed put. They also worked very well with gloves, which is important if you’re used to working with hand protection.
We used the wrenches on a myriad of jobs. Of these, our favorite was grabbing a 9/16″ wrench and adjusting the rear-view mirrors on a 2002 Suzuki Volusia motorcycle. These wrenches just plain work and they are built extremely well. We had no qualms about really leaning on them and pulling as hard as as needed to loosen even the most stubborn nuts. As far as a compliment goes, the best thing you can say about a wrench is that you don’t worry about it breaking during use. The 15 degree offset handle is more or less standard in the industry and offers better knuckle clearance during use.
This 10-piece set Includes the following SAE sizes:
- 1/4″ SAE
- 5/16″ SAE
- 3/8″ SAE
- 7/16″ SAE
- 1/2″ SAE
- 9/16″ SAE
- 5/8″ SAE
- 11/16″ SAE
- 3/4″ SAE
- 7/8″ SAE
All Kobalt hand tools come with a lifetime “hassle-free” guarantee. We can easily recommend this set, though there is a lot of competition in this field. Where the Kobalt set takes notice, however, is in value. At just under $40, this is one of the least expensive wrench sets you can buy.
